It's made with the flaggelatory ardour that Ken Loach brings to all his films, a hard edged realism pounded into the mortar of cinema with naturalism

There's plenty of evidence of Loach's undiminished power as a film-maker, and equally ample evidence that something is very rotten in the state of Northern Ireland.

Made in 1990, it feels and looks like it's from 1980. Frances McDormand is an especially snoozy disappointment in a woefully miscast role.

Gripping stuff, even if the outbreak of peace in Northern Ireland has somewhat blunted the message.

This quietly explosive film comes to resonate more loudly than melodrama.

Hidden Agenda could be accused of being dogmatic (Loach's films frequently slam the U.K. government), but the director keeps a sense of gritty authenticity throughout.

Simplistic and unconvincing, but with some power

It's good for a watch but far from a perfect film.

Its own terms and for much of the way, this is a superior thriller.

Ken Loach's Hidden Agenda must be the most buttoned-down movie about a conspiracy theory ever made.

The film is a bit slow and at times slightly strained, and there are moments when you'll be hard-pressed to understand all the dialogue -- but on the whole it is effective and chilling.

Well-intentioned, but rather murky.

Though it attempts to make an acceptable theatrical entertainment out of a complex political saga, Hidden Agenda lacks bigscreen impact.
